Useful information

  • What to consider when buying a front door?

    A front door makes a significant contribution to the security, energy efficiency, sound insulation and look of your home. Therefore, buying a new front door should be carefully planned. We would like to make this easier for you, and have prepared a short checklist for you, addressing all important aspects.

    1. Accurate measurements

    Taking accurate measurements is important to ensure that your new front door fits perfectly into the existing door opening. Only a perfect fit achieves ideal values in terms of tightness, thermal insulation, sound insulation and burglary protection. heroal specialised partners measure your door directly on site. Use heroal’s specialised partner search to find the ideal fabricator near you, among more than 3,500 specialised partners worldwide.

    2. Design

    The front door is a highlight and sets the tone for the look of the house. Therefore, the design of your front door should match your individual ideas and the style of your house. Whether classic or modern: a wide range of colours, surfaces, shapes and panels are available for heroal front doors.

    3. Material

    The choice of the right material has an impact on the quality, durability, security and sound insulation of your front door. We differentiate between front doors made from wood, PVC and aluminium. When choosing the material, remember that your door should be robust, easy-care and durable. heroal relies on the material aluminium. Therefore, heroal front doors achieve excellent performance features and stand out for their thermal insulation, stability, durability, burglary protection and versatile design options.

    4. Burglary protection

    Front doors are popular targets attracting burglars – therefore, they should at least provide for burglary protection of resistance class RC 2. Then, the door will resist an opportunistic perpetrator trying to get in using basic tools for 3 minutes. The higher the resistance class, the better the burglary protection of the door. In addition to the resistance class, it is also important to pay attention to additional components when buying a front door, such as burglar-resistant fittings with multi-point locking, penetration-resistant door panels and door hinges with additional security devices on the hinged side. heroal front doors have been certified up to resistance class RC 3 by the German testing institutes ift-Rosenheim and TÜV-Nord, which means they withstand attempted break-ins up to 5 minutes.

    5. Thermal insulation

    Front doors as well as sidelights and fanlights play an important role when it comes to the energy efficiency of your house. A well-insulated exterior door should at least meet the requirements of the German Building Energy Act (GEG 2020) and have a minimum U-value of UD ≤ 1.8 W/m2K. The lower the U-value, the better the thermal insulation of the front door. The front door system heroal D 92 UD, for example, achieves U-values of UD > 0.7 W/m2K, meeting passive house level.

    6. Sound insulation

    Nowadays, the noise level outside your own house should not be underestimated. Especially in residential areas near busy streets, airports or railway lines, a good sound insulation has a significant impact on health and comfort of living. Therefore, your door should ensure sufficient noise protection for your home. The choice of the right soundproofing class depends on the noise level measured. Ask your heroal specialised partner about it – you will find a specialised partner near you in heroal’s specialised partner search. A partner will use special sound meters to measure the noise level, and determine the individually required soundproofing class.

    7. Professional installation

    The professional installation and adjustment of a front door ensures optimal results in terms of thermal insulation, security, sound insulation and durability. heroal specialised partners provide specialist advice, take measurements on site, deliver and install your new front door – and, if required, also dismount your old front door – , so that the optimal functioning of your new front door can be guaranteed and you can enjoy your new front door for a long time. And they are available at any time as your service partners, if your front door should require maintenance or repair.

  • When should a front door be replaced?

    The ideal time for replacing your old front door depends on a number of different factors. The expected cost of repairing a damaged door plays an important role, but also energy efficiency, sound insulation, burglary protection and changes in design preferences. The tighter and better insulated the front door, the less heat will be lost from the inside to the outside and the lower energy will be required to heat or air-condition your house. Security, or an increased need for security, are also important aspects that may lead to replacing an old door. heroal aluminium front doors offer a basic burglary protection as a standard, and have been certified up to resistance class RC 3.

    With a new front door, you will be able to achieve optimal values in terms of burglary protection, thermal insulation and sound insulation, and thus feel secure and comfortable in your own home. The design of a new front door may also enhance the look of your home, because you can adapt its design to your individual requirements and preferences.

  • Which material is best for front doors?

    Front doors are available in different materials, such as wood, PVC or aluminium. Each material offers advantages and disadvantages. In many respects, aluminium has proven to be the best material. Because it stands out for high stability, resistance to warping, best thermal insulation values, burglary protection, versatile designs, durability, low maintenance and very easy care.

    heroal front doors are made from aluminium. They are not only very secure and durable, they also offer ideal insulation features up to passive house suitability. Thanks to innovative coating technologies, various surface designs can be created, ranging from a wide pallet of RAL colours to wood, rust or concrete looks. In addition, an aluminium front door by heroal is made from 85 % recycled aluminium, ensuring highest energy efficiency with the lowest possible us of material.

  • How high should the insulation value of a front door be?

    The insulation value of a new front door is defined by the German Building Energy Act (GEG), formerly Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV), and describes a maximum thermal transmittance value of UD = 1.8 W/m2K. The lower the thermal transmittance value, the better the insulation features of a front door. Extremely energy-efficient front doors, such as the front door system heroal D 92 UD, offer insulation values of UD ≥ 0.7 W/m2K, even meeting passive house levels. It is recommended to select a front door with an insulation value below the statutory value of UD = 1.8 W/m2K, so that your front door, and your home, will also meet tomorrow’s energetic requirements.

  • How can fully accessible front doors be designed?

    Generally, we distinguish between accessible (or barrier-free) front doors with a maximum threshold height of 20 mm, and front doors with zero barrier (also 0-barrier), which describes an absolutely level, step-free threshold. To provide for fully accessible living, a front door with a zero barrier is expressly required. The German promotional bank KfW offers attractive funding programmes to achieve this. All models of heroal’s range of front doors can be designed with an accessible or level threshold. If a ground-level threshold in combination with an uncovered entrance area allows water to intrude, e.g. from driving rain, we recommend a drainage system for barrier-free front doors. With its drainage system heroal DS, heroal offers an integrated solution that keeps driving rain and accumulating water away from your front door and at the same time allows for the installation of a 0-barrier. The almost invisible drainage system heroal DS is designed for a drainage capacity of up to 200 l/m2.

  • What design options are available for heroal front doors?

    With heroal aluminium front doors, a wide range of design options is made available to you. In addition to individually requested sizes, sidelights and fanlights can be added as required. Thanks to the highly weather-resistant heroal hwr powder coating, the colour intensity of your aluminium front door will be retained for years. There are up to 500 RAL and DB colours available to you, with different gloss rates ranging from brilliant through satin-gloss to mat, to perfectly adapt your front door to the style and colour design of your house. The exclusive, nature-inspired Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier colours offer yet a completely new colour spectrum. For those of you who do not want to do without the excellent material advantages of an aluminium front door, but favour looks such as wood, concrete or rust, the coating technology heroal Surface Design (SD) offers a wide range of options. With the heroal colour configurator, you can test the different colours and surfaces already now.

  • Which structural forms are available for heroal front doors?

    Different designs are possible for the entrance to your home, according to your wishes. You are free to choose a side panel on the left, the right or on both sides of your front door. heroal front doors make it easy to turn your ideas into a reality. A transom light above the door can provide additional illumination. heroal also offers round-arch windows as transom lights made with our own in-house bending service. That means fast and flexible delivery for your round-arch transom light. The opening direction also plays an important role in the design of a front door. Your door can open to the right or left as required.

  • Which fittings are used for heroal front doors?

Self-locking and multi-locking fitting options can give your front door an extra level of safety.

    Door hinges for aluminium front doors

The number of hinges required depends on the total weight of the front door. With heroal, you can choose between an aluminium or stainless steel roller hinge, a top hinge or a concealed door hinge that is practically invisible. Hinges are also available in a wide variety of colours.

  • Are heroal front doors capable of interacting with smart home systems?

    Keyless entry

    Keyless entry allows you to open your front door using a code or fingerprint system. A fingerprint system recognises the stored fingerprints and opens the door only if there is a match. The advantage of a keyless entry system is that you no longer have to carry a heavy bunch of keys with you. And a front door key that you do not have to carry around cannot be lost or stolen. A keyless access system additionally increases your security by preventing theft and burglary.

    Smart home

    heroal aluminium front doors are compatible with all common smart home systems Mit einem Smart Home System ist nicht nur das automatische Schließen und Öffnen, sondern auch die Überwachung des Verriegelungszustands Ihrer Tür von unterwegs aus möglich. In addition to increasing the comfort, it makes your front door safer. With a smartphone-controlled solution, your front door can open automatically when you come home and close automatically when you leave. The transmitter can register the smartphone in your pocket without you doing anything at all.

  • What about the energy efficiency of heroal front doors?

    The thermal insulation of your front door is an important factor when it comes to energy-efficient building or renovation. At heroal, we are continuously developing our front door profile systems and creating innovative technologies that are unique on the market. Depending on your needs, your heroal front door can achieve different insulation values, from highly insulated to passive-house certified.

    heroal thermal break technology

    heroal profile systems for front doors and windows set the standards for thermal insulation and always provide both sustainability and cost-effectiveness. At the heart of our systems is a unique thermal break technology that combines maximum strength with minimum heat loss. The geometries of the thermal breaks reduce the energy flow, which lowers the heat conductivity from the door interior to the outside. The heroal D 92 UD front door system can achieve U-levels of 0.7, which qualifies this front door as passive-house certified.

    heroal foam filling process

    The foaming process of heroal front door profiles also contributes significantly to superior thermal insulation. Filling the insulation chambers up 100 enables more optimal use of the thermal insulation compared to webs that are covered with insulating material.
